TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: New York 12-step meetings and aftercare programs from the DRS directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—take a long or short walk, or join a community center or fitness center.
  • Access open or free addiction health counseling or contact New York 2-1-1.
  • Find an extroverted activity—experience New York’s nature, arts and culture, historic sites, outdoor adventures, and amusements.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Be aware of triggers and unmanaged stress.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through DRS or the New York Office of Addiction Services and Supports.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through the Overdose Prevention program within the Office of Addiction Services and Supports.
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. These resources are available through the Office of Addiction Services and Supports.
  • Organize a family intervention and hire a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling an addict as this makes it difficult to get them help.

Long-Term Drug Rehab in New York State

It is our professional opinion at DRS that the most effective approach to substance abuse recovery is long-term rehabilitation — here are several reasons why:

  • The program can last anywhere from 1 to 3 months or even longer, giving every resident a chance to fully recover before they leave the facility.
  • Because of the treatment length, all addiction and recovery dynamics can be addressed.
  • In addition to substance use, the program’s focus can be on the person’s spiritual, mental, and physical health.
  • Long-term treatment in New York often offers 24/7 medical support for those needing it during their program.

As we can see, long-term treatment is widely available throughout New York. Regardless of the personal or financial situation of the person, there is help for them.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Treatment in New York

The cost of treatment in New York depends on factors such as program type and length, or if the person has health insurance. Those with insurance may be able to receive treatment for no cost, while those with no insurance may find it quite expensive. The type of insurance a person has plays a role in the final cost. There are also rehabs that take Medicaid in New York.

Using Private Insurance to Pay for Drug Rehab in New York

Private health insurance can pay for drug rehab in New York. The cost may be quite low, but the person is always at least paying for the insurance. But private insurers are known for denying claims or only approving short stays in rehab at low levels of care. This saves their expenses but disservices the patient.

Many people cannot afford private health insurance but make too much income to qualify for traditional Medicaid coverage. The good news is that New York has an excellent exchange program where people can apply for discounted policies through participating insurers.

The following insurers are available through the New York Health Insurance Marketplace Guide 2023:

  • Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan
  • Emblem
  • Excellus Health Plan
  • Fidelis
  • Healthfirst PHSP
  • Health Plus HP
  • Highmark Western and Northeastern New York
  • Independent Health Benefits Corporation
  • Metro Plus Health Plan
  • MVP Health Plan
  • Oscar
  • UnitedHealthcare of New York

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

Even though the above options are available, some people still end up paying for treatment when uninsured. This can happen because those who become addicted to drugs often stop taking care of themselves. This includes maintaining health insurance or applying for Medicaid coverage. And when treatment is needed, there’s no time to waste shopping for policies that likely won’t cover such services.

Instead, a better plan is to try and find a program that offers sliding scale payment options. The sliding scale helps people afford treatment by basing the cost on their income and providing discounts to those that need them the most.

For more information on paying for treatment, you can reach out to one of the treatment specialists at DRS. Or contact the center directly.

DRS’ Evaluation of Drug Rehab in New York

In New York State, there are extensive substance use treatment programs to choose from. Overall, programs are affordable, with the majority accepting Medicaid and private health insurance. We recommend contacting numerous facilities and asking about payment options. Also, contact your Medicaid office or health insurance provider and find out what is covered. Most of the programs in the state also offer a sliding-fee scale to low-income clients.

Outpatient and detox centers are in abundance. Yet, the demand for residential treatment centers and detoxification often takes over the number of available beds. Our experts recommend contacting more than one program at a time.

More Information

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
